Researchers at St. Jude developed an anti-CD7 chimeric antigen receptor (CD7 CAR) to use for treating hematologic cancers expressing the CD7 gene, which include lymphoblastic T-cell leukemia and lymphomas. The majority of T-cells, approximately 90%, express CD7 and are removed before transduction. The CD7 CAR is introduced into the remaining subset of T cells that do not naturally express CD7.
